changing the plots
23 February 2013 | by veronicammartinSee all my reviews

I don't like the Geraldine McEwan series because of the changes that are made to cater to modern ideals don't fit into the era in which the books are written.

In this series, so many of these books are changed to have homosexual TV characters which had they been modern stories would be permissible but they are n't modern stories. These are 1930's - 1950s stories and the characters aren't even in the books. Some of the TV stories are just completely changed by this. In fact, My friends renamed 'The Body in the library' as 'The lesbians in the library' ! The Sittaford Mystery suddenly has the two women go off together to Argentina! Why add this when it isn't even in the books?

Agatha Christie is superb and can stand alone without any character and plot changes . Leave these stories how they were meant to be, how they were actually written. Don't introduce or change the sexuality of characters to cater for modern viewers.It changes the feel of the book.

Awful.
